LINQ2SQL - putting models in own assembly/Project?

Nov 25, 2010 at 8:45 AM

Hi there,


I followed the instructions for adding linq2sql to my vs 2008 project. All went well but the DBML and the models are together.. I wanted to have my models separate so i copied the the tt file to my model project and now everything works with a small change in the tt file.


generator.DbmlFile = @"..\MyRepository.Repository\MyData.dbml";


1 problem though, the consturctor of the tts file on the datacontext it is calling my repository (original project). I can edit it but when its regenerated its reedited. Am i doing something wrong

public MyDataDataContext()
            : base(MyRepository.Repository.Properties.Settings.Default.DATAConnectionString)

This is wrong, so i have to change it to.

: base(Properties.Settings.Default.DATAConnectionString)


and now it works.

Also under the original MyData.dbml although i deleted the TT file and moved it to another project its recreated but its pretty much empty. Just has this


<#@ template language="C#" hostspecific="True" debug="True" #>
<#@ output extension="txt" #>
<#@ include file="" #>

i would really appreciated any feedback of what i am doing wrong or if there is a workaround.


Thanks in advance

The name of the settings class is stored in the DBML file. Your .DBML file and your DataContext class must be in the same project.
